Google Earth 6 Adds 3D Trees, Better Street View Integration

Windows/Mac/Linux: The just-released Google Earth 6 adds an entirely new — and surprisingly interesting — dimension to Google’s virtual globe application: 3D trees. Well, trees and a much-improved street view.

Currently Google’s mapped actual trees in 3D in cities across the globe, including San Francisco, Tokyo, Athens, and Chicago. To enable trees, you’ll need to tick the Trees checkbox inside the 3D Buildings layer.

For anyone that's counting, Google Earth now does trees, sky, ocean, buildings and streets. Crazy. Google Earth is a free download for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.
